"It is pitch black in the Watergate Hotel."
shushufindi's comment asking why San Francisco is the way it is, especially with regard to homeless outreach and SROs in the Mission. I moved to SF this year from the East Coast and this comment really summed up my inability to understand how the city works.
DanCall for suggesting the movie Salesman, which I later watched on Netflix. Thanks!
Bookhouse, for confirming my own sanity: I Am Legend is not about zombies!
tumid dahlia great comment on the Netflix/Quikster fiasco didn't get enough love: Qwikster sounds like a spoon made out of delicious chocolate or strawberry or banana and you put it in your glass of milk and you stir it until it dissolves and you have chocolate milk and one less bit of washing up and you drink it and mmm, chocolate milk!
Hogshead for defending The Life Aquatic in the "When Bad Films Happen to Good Directors" post.
Inspector.Gadget (also in the Netflix/Quikster thread) because I'm a sucker for this kind of shorthand.
Durn Bronzefist, with a comment that still made me giggle right now (George Carlin thread, comment is about Louis C.K.)
falameufilho "outer borough dumbass". I was the only person to favorite that comment but he is absolutely right.
Ad hominem; gets it w/r/t cheap hardware and the future of cloud computing.
threeants: no don't call the big deal law firm you just joined and ask about the dresscode.
griphus for caring about language even in the East Coast Earthquakopolypse thread.
Iron Mouth, preach: I deal with the every day. Tech journalism is incredibly shoddy. What's $3 Billion between friends?
danny the boy: I felt like I was taking crazy pills until I read your comments in the Vodka thread.
Another Fine Product From The Nonsense Factory lifts the curtain on, well, the nonsense factory.
GuyZero, for my new favorite quote: “I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
Gator, I'm glad somebody said it about the poor editing in the Mumbai blasts thread.
Flood, for summing Breaking Bad's faults so I didn't have to.
jacquilynne: It's called a Filter for a reason.
edheil: Sometimes the first comment says exactly what I'm thinking.
furiousxgeorge: I just really liked the tone of this comment. It's something I would say (because I am also a jerk).
Celsius1414: I had just started a new job the week prior, and this well-timed fart joke gave me a giggle fit that was hard to explain.
crunchland wonders where the old mefites have gone. Indeed, one day perhaps we'll all be just a memory.
StopMakingSense: too bad the image is down, anyone remember it? Another U.S. presidential candidates baloney thread.
IjonTichy: real talk about Half Life 2
BitterOldPunk: posted the "right" answer to posted question "how do MeFites keep up with all the content in time to participate in commenting". (And I suspect the underlying question; do people even bother to read the content of posts before commenting. Yes, we did, days ago in our RSS feeders). This comment was largely overlooked but is important to remember.
two lights above the sea, yep MetaTalk can be like that.
Rykey: I keep coming back to this rendition of Van Lennon /Imagine a Jump.
odinsdream for the first big laugh of 2011 (and troll on a pony for not changing the tags after the fact!) Who will deliver the first big laugh of 2012? The answer could be you.
